Hurricane Electric NewsPrague – Hurricane Electric, the world’s largest IPv6-native Internet backbone and leading colocation provider, today announced that it has connected to NIX.CZ, the Czech Republic’s largest Internet exchange. This new connection continues the expansion of Hurricane Electric’s network reach in Europe and will provide customers of NIX.CZ greater bandwidth, reduced latency and improved quality of service. The new connection will also enable Hurricane Electric to improve fault tolerance, load balancing and congestion management infrastructure capabilities for the delivery of IPv6 access services.

“With this new connection, Hurricane Electric is strengthening its commitment to the Central European market, whose demand for high-quality IPv6 connectivity is growing rapidly,” said Martin Levy, Hurricane Electric’s Director of IPv6 Strategy. “This new connection will allow Hurricane Electric to continue its aggressive global expansion while delivering next-generation IP access.”

In November, Hurricane Electric announced that it has partnered with NIX.CZ to launch Hurricane Electric’s highly popular IPv6 certification program in Czech.

An IPv6 leader for over a decade, Hurricane Electric first deployed IPv6 on its global backbone in 2001. Hurricane Electric’s global Internet backbone is one of the few that is IPv6-native and does not rely on internal tunnels for IPv6 connectivity. IPv6 is offered as a core service and every customer is provided IPv6 connectivity, as well as classic IPv4 connectivity. Hurricane Electric connects to more than 1,600 associated IPv6 backbones.
